  • Notes 
    • King of France (1824-1830).
      The younger brother of Kings Louis XVI and Louis XVIII was originally known as Count of Artois. He emigrated in 1789, at the outbreak of the Revolution, and tried to rally support among European courts in order to fight the new regime. He attempted to land on the Island of Yeu in 1795. He spent the enti­re Napoleonic period in England, returning to France in 1814 when the monarchy was re-established. Charles X became King of France in 1824, upon the death of his brother, Louis XVIII. He left Villele to govern but the minister was unpopular because of the reactionary measures he introduced (vote on indemnities for emi­gres in 1825). The king was less flexible than his brother had been and he totally ignored the progress of the liberal opposition. Instead, he gave the impression that he wanted to return to the old prorevolutionary regime. After Villele's downfall and the failure of the moderate government instigated by de Martignac, Charles X nominated Polignac, an ultra-royalist, and this was seen as a provocation (1829). Despite the Address of the 221 (members of parliament) reminding the king of the principles laid down in the Charter (March 1830), the monarch published the Four Ordinances on 25th July, restricting voting rights, limiting the freedom of the press and dissolving the Assembly. These laws led to a popular uprising on 27th, 28th and 29th July 1830, the "Three Glorious Days", which caused Charles X to abdi­cate. During his reign, French foreign policy led the country to intervene militari­ly in Greece in 1827 in support of the Greek push for independence from Turkey. France also began the colonial conquest of Algeria (capture of Algiers in July 1830). After his abdication, Charles X lived in England then in Austria where he died in 1836. His downfall marked the end of the French Bourbon line.
